this commercial is such a classic!

Subject: Fascinating glimpses into US presidential election history
Compared to presidential election ads today, these television commercials sometimes seem almost juvenile and amateurish-- when they do not look so eerily similar.

Promises of equality and concern for average Americans (from both sides) are balanced by pledges to never be weak, and by a consensus that Americans had much to fear from "communism."

All the commercials are fascinating from many points of view.

I found the one of Jacqueline Kennedy speaking in Spanish extraordinarily unforgettable. One sees her big smile of relief after successfully accomplishing what she had been directed to do. One yet thinks of how innocent and almost childish she appeared, even as she tried so hard to appear serious.

review deleted, as I feel now that the review was in poor taste.
